The Shelter Island Jazzfest wraps up this week with three more great bands: The Grand Street Stompers, the HooDoo Loungers and vocalist Vanessa Trouble.
A special shout-out goes to the venerable Gene Casey, who this past week received the 2015 Long Island Music Award from the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. Gene’s band, The Lone Sharks, is a regular at the Pridwin Wednesday night barbecue and his duo can often be found at the Shipwreck at SALT. Anyone who knows Gene knows how hard he has worked to bring genuine rockabilly “with a twang” to the Long Island music scene for nearly 30 years. Way to go, Gene!
It was also nice to see such a good turnout for the first gazebo concert at Volunteer Park last Thursday. The music scene here continues to grow and we love it.
